Let me just get this out of the way first, if you're going to be a condescending jerk about it, at least use correct grammar.
do I NEED TO REMIND YOU they handed us are ASS, not once, but twice
OUR, not are. Additionally, are you referring to the Outback Bowls after the 2000 and 2001 seasons?!? Those were a decade and a half ago. In fact they were in last year of the Cooper (two coaches ago!) and first year of the Tressel (the man who left 5 years ago!) eras. Dude, the players on this team were like 5-6 years old back then. How the hell is that even relevant?!?!
Both A&M & TN is better than any of those sorry band of losers....
Is should be used only for singular nouns and pronouns. TWO is more than singular. So, you actually could have used "are..."
Look at OSU's schedule and look at SC's. Seriously look at them. The SEC East is not nearly as good as the B1G East. With SC's schedule, I'd give OSU and MSU a better than average chance of running the table. I really do see 8-9 wins for PSU or UM in there, which is more than SC will have, IMO. People love the "team X would run the table in Y conference" argument, so let's have it. With SC's schedule, I could see OSU, MSU, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and maybe PSU winning at least 9 games, and Iowa, Minnesota, and UM grabbing at least 8 W's, and maybe winning the SEC East. Could the same be said if SC played their schedules? I don't know. But, they're not that good and the SEC East is pretty awful outside of a UGA team that has no QB and hasn't won a big time bowl game since Herschel donned the G.
I think that's everyone's point - It's not like SC is playing of bunch of world beaters, but they don't have to because everyone unfairly gives SEC teams a pass when it come to their OOC schedule. That may be pretty fair for the SEC West, which is very good, but UGA, Tennessee, SC, and Mizzou wouldn't be given any consideration as top 25 teams if they were in any other conference.
Think of this entire discussion this way - what would "SEC fans" (I still can't believe that's a thing. Anyone ever heard of an American League Central fan?) say if Illinois bitched about how easy Missouri's schedule was? Hell, what would we say?
